It’s here: Cold, rainy, foggy fall weather. Every day, the sun goes down a little bit earlier and after the third rainy day in a row, you ask yourself: How do I keep my toddler entertained when we can’t be outside all day?
A couple weeks ago, we used one of those overcast and misty days to visit the botanical gardens (Botanika) here in Bremen, which is a wonderful place to slow down and being transported to a different world.
Together with Oma, Ella and I spent a wonderful day discovering different kinds of plants, counting hundreds of butterflies and watching the little monkeys play. We even watched the Koi being fed and Oma was so brave to feed them herself by hand.
For lunch, we went to the adjacent restaurant and afterwards took advantage of a break of the rain and went for a walk through the park, so Ella could take her nap and my mom and I could catch up.
We carry our Quinny stroller in the trunk of our car at all times to have it ready when we’re out and about. The stroller can be folded down so small, that it doesn’t take up much room in the car and is really convenient for long walks and especially naps for Ella.
Ella fell asleep after just minutes, exhausted from all the new impressions and slept through the whole walk. She didn’t even notice when it started sprinkling again, thanks to the rain cover.
It looked so cozy and cuddly in her stroller and I have to admit, I was a little jealous.. Who wouldn’t like being able to sleep in the fresh air; warm, dry and watched after from your loved ones?
